JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The apportionment of power in Florida and the United States balances on some lines on a map.
Those lines, which define state and congressional voting districts, will be redrawn in the coming weeks and months as the Florida Legislature embarks on its once-a-decade redistricting. That process got underway Tuesday in Tallahassee with the first meeting of the Florida Senate Redistricting Committee.
“People need to be paying attention,” said Andrew Pantazi. He is the founding editor of The Tributary, a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom that plans to cover reapportionment closely.
